Navy’s Decision to Drop Flight Plan
* What a victory for Silver Strand, Hollywood Beach and all citizens of this country who never thought you could challenge big government and win!
Last week, the Navy dropped its proposal to fly jets simulating missiles at the residents of our communities. What a victory for common sense. Big thanks to all Beacon members and its founder Vickie Finan. We went from “a small noisy group,” as quoted in last week’s paper from the same person. All residents should remember the elected officials who supported the Navy’s plan to fly jets at our homes, namely Supervisor [John] Flynn and [Channel Islands Beach Community Services District] directors [Patrick] Forrest and [Gail] Pringle, who are up for reelection this November. As to their chances of reelection, I suggest they open their windows, as there is a fat lady singing in the harbor.
